Xamarin enables C# developers to become native iOS, Android, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS app developers overnight. In this session, you will learn how to leverage your existing .NET and C# skills to create iOS and Android mobile apps in Visual Studio with Xamarin. In addition to allowing you write your iOS and Android apps in C#, Xamarin lets you reuse existing .NET libraries and share your business logic across any .NET app.
During this session we will cover the Xamarin platform and how to create native iOS, Android, and Windows apps in C#. Moreover, we will really focus on the code with several live coding adventures throughout the entire session.
